  • So peaceful. Unfortunately they are doing repairs work so we didn't see it in its full glory this time
  • It's wheelchair accessible which is great but it's not the prettiest monument design.
  • Small city memorial garden dedicated to Ireland's military and founding fathers and mothers.
  • A lovely green place in Sublin to spend an hour on a sunny afternoon. I recommend visiting the Writer Museum next to the park if you are interested in Irish writers
  • A wonderful peaceful place for contemplation. A historic place in Irish history for 100 years
